's speech early this morning was a gracious one. we'll take you live to boston. we'll take a look at what went wrong for the romney campaign. >>> many people are crediting the campaign organization as one of the reasons for his re- election win. the political reporter joins us via skype joins us outside of washington, d.c. how did obama's campaign get out the vote efforts really pay off? >> reporter: well, if you break down the redales and start -- details and start -- and start looking at them, it's almost county by county, the president winning most of the same counties in florida and in ohio and then you start then going into the details and you see that the democrats were able to get out of vote again and sometimes mitt romney was not even able to reach the level of what john mccain had gone four years ago. one example in franklin county, the obama people were able to get 15,000 more votes than people while the mccain levels were not reached by romney. down in south florida, miami- dade, home to marco rubio. the romney campaign couldn't come close as the obama squeezed the out 70,000
washington, new york and boston. that's because crews are still repairing the damage caused by sandy. amtrak is telling passengers to make reservations by phone or online to avoid soldout trains and long lines at ticket counters. >> hurricane sandy is making it extremely difficult on the new york state board of elections. they're shipping generators out to polling locations that are still without power. the board is expecting a low turnout. less than 25% rejgistered voter. the news comes as new jersey's board of elections announced it will allow residents to e-mail their votes in if they cannot get to a polling station. >>> right now, montgomery county council president roger better lander is discussing pepco's response to hurricane sandy. he's meeting with members of the media at the council office building in rockville. thousands lost electricity in the county as trees knocked over power lines following the storm. but pepco is receiving mostly high praise for their response. restoring power to everyone only a few days after that dynamic storm. >>> jersey just can't catch a break. they had

and atmosphere is like in boston for governor romney's campaign headquarters. for that we go to hampton pearson. >> reporter: how are you doing, phil. mitt and ann romney voted a few moments ago here in boston. a bit of an irony. no expert or citizen expects romney to carry massachusetts, his home state. experts say he'll be lucky if he matches 36% that john mccain got four years ago when he ran against barack obama. it's not just the fact that massachusetts is a state that tilts democratic. frankly voters here have similar complaints to what has been heard nationally about the former governor. >> i don't think there's a mystery about mitt romney. i think the united states is learning what we learned here. we're never exactly sure if he means what he says and how long he's going to stick with it. >> reporter: the real action in massachusetts is the dead heat contest for the senate between scott brown, the republican, and elizabeth warren, the democrat. voter turnout could top 70%. some 3 million plus votes being cast in one of the most closely watched senate races in the country that could very
. first we start with john roberts who is live in boston where he's been traveling with the mitt romney campaign, and an empty room behind you today, john. >> reporter: it is an empty room. we feel like that final scene in ferris bueller's day off saying why are you still here, it's over go home. the romney campaign is scratching its head trying to figure out what happened yesterday. they clearly thought they had enough votes in florida, virginia, and ohio to carry things over-the-top. they were talking with their get out the vote people, who said they were getting them out to the polls and we think we can carry this off. and suddenly puff. it has to be a bitter disappointment after six long years, the hours put in and the money spent. he dead his best not to show that in his concession speech as he appealed to his supporters to embrace the very best of america. >> we look to our parents, in the final analysis everything depends on the success of our homes. we look to job creators of all kinds, we are counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward. and we look to democrats and repu
challenged and eluded us. >> as for mitt romney, in a twisted this picture of him in his boston hotel room this morning surrounded by family members, and a gallon of chocolate milk. after a gracious concession speech mitt romney's political future remains uncertain. his running mate, paul ryan returns to his old job in congress. >> with this level of the president did a very, very effective campaign. second i think the country was looking at a different set of things and we were looking at. >> we are going to hear a lot about what it is not the republicans that are celebrating into michael yaki will be here to analyze the results. >>pam: new tonight an attempted kidnapping of a 42 year-old girl in broad daylight in east oakland this happened on tuesday as the child was walking to her neighborhood on the international boulevard near 103rd. they tried to grab her from behind around 4:30 >> they tried to draw occurred toward the vehicle they believe that she was going to be put inside of that car. she was able to break free from this stranger. she told her parents what happened and the first
on the night. and so going into boston that day, we felt like we had a pretty darn good chance of winning. as you can imagine it was a bit of a shock. when we didn't win. >> reporter: "saturday night live" poked fun at ryan, native of janesville, wisconsin. >> mother sent me to got you, father. paul ryan is doing feats of strength in the drawing room. she thought we would like to see. >> i would like to see him carry wisconsin! >> reporter: the president wins 330-some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so. because they also re-elected the house republicans. whether people -- intended or not, we have got divided government. >> reporter: you don't think there is a mandate here? >> i don't. because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these idea that we talked about i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we are going to have to make sure it
familiar wind, up to 60-mile-an-hour gusts, anywhere from atlantic city northeastward to boston, but mostly on eastern long island, cape cod and the islands. that would be nantucket and martha's vineyard. so it is mostly a coastal influence when it comes to the wind and certainly not as bad as sandy, but there's also coastal flooding a possibility, minor tide tomorrow afternoon and the big wildcard i'm referring to a brief mix with heavy, wet snow which may bring renewed power outages even to the new york metro area tomorrow late afternoon and tomorrow night. so we will be taking a look at that as the day progresses. now, a chance of snow involved as well. >> todd gross, thank you very much. >>> and with much of new jersey still suffering in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, where and how to vote could be an issue for lots of people. my polling place was moved. kayla tausche is tracking that in the garden state. >> reporter: getting people to the polls is a major task here in the storm-ravaged state with hundreds in shelters hundreds of thousands still without power. an original plan to hav
with a philadelphia investment accounting firm, cook and dealer was bought by a boston financial firm, united asset management which ed eventually ran. from there he became chairman and ceo of delaware investments, a mutual management co. and next he was called in to run putnam investments in boston, even larger mutual-fund management firm that has experienced regulatory failings by the previous management. he righted that ship and eventually sold a good price for shareholders to large canadian financial firm. it was at that time we approach ed to run freddie. freddie and fanny, together with broader issues of u.s. government in housing finance is one of the major unfinished pieces of business in financial regulatory reform. is clearly an important issue. we have c-span here tonight filming this. ed has a unique perspective, the perspective of an experienced manager on the frontline and a most thoughtful public policy participant. this evening he is going to talk about where the g s es have been and what to do with them. my great pleasure to introduce ed haldeman. [applause] >> thanks so much for t
on election day. >> and we'll also head out to boston to find out what one strategist says the election will mean for wall street. no more debates, no more rallies, at least for, what, two weeks. president obama and mitt romney will leave their fate in the hands of u.s. voters today after a long and bitter campaign battle. national polls show obama and romney in a dead heat. although the president seems to have an edge in ohio. and tracie potts joins us live from cincinnati, ohio in the wee hours of the morning there. when do polls open, how important is ohio, and when will we start to get a sense of the outcome? >> reporter: the polls here in ohio open at 6:30 eastern time. so we have about 2 1/2 hours. this is one of the polling places, a local church here behind me. however important is ohio? for months we've been talking about ohio really sort of being a bellwether state, ohio being the most important battleground state. and that's because ohio has a history of choosing presidents, particularly cincinnati where i am, it's been described as really the biggest swing part of one of the
this was the only way to file right away and it was something that was made by a company called leefax out of boston, some guys from and they were making scanning equipment to digitize negatives and take it back to wherever the printing presses were. but at any rate, john literally put on something that locked like a -- looked like scuba diving gear on his back. i kid you not. it was that big. it was a huge backpack and had a cable running into the camera. he transmitted that back to news day and made the paper and it was noisy as hell. it was a very grainy image, very messy image. it was not anything that you would see from film. but at any rate, that is the kind of stuff that people were dealing with 25 years ago. and when digital cameras first came out, i was one of the last who wanted one. >> exactly, i remember. >> because, because, because the images were very noisy, the cameras were very heavy, they big and objetrusivobtrusive. but today you look at what we are using now, michelle has a bigger camera which is probably of a norm, but this is a digital camera here and it will make a file probab
is in chicago, and mitt romney in boston. we'll focus on the more competitive senate seats and taking reaction throughout the night by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter with live coverage beginning at eight eastern on c-span c-span radio, and c-span.org. >> when i watch c-span, i like the morning journal, the give and take there, the balanced approach, and i also like to hear the callers. never called myself, but i like hearing the callers. some of them are unusual to say the least, others thought provoking. c-span is everywhere. in washington, every event, you know, small hearings, public policy meeting downtown, c-span just seems to be there. >> steve austin watching c-span on verizon. c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979 brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >>> up next, former presidential candidate ralph nader on his book "17 solutions: bold ideas for america's future" looking at the political and cosh -- landscape and issues facing the country. the independent candidate for president in 2004 and 2008 discusses tax reform, the reduction of the
real. host: next call is from boston, on the democratic line. caller: from the iranian perspective, i would like to remind you that it was the united states that fired the first shot when it launched a virus against a dangerous situation. perhaps you did not think they would respond. if you did not, you should not be in the job you are in. have a nice day. guest: i don't know what the question was. host: let's hear from an independent scholar in ohio. caller: morning, i am fascinated about how many people are against this cyber security act. why would the government have to tell you to lock your front door and closed her windows at night to keep people from breaking in? if you live in a neighborhood where there is a large number of these break-ins, it is common sense that the neighbors would get together and tell each other about the different methods that were being used, not what you have in your house. if you run a business and you don't lock your front gate or your doors are file cabinets, you are an idiot. why the government should even have to tell you that -- if you had the hop
headquarters in boston. wendell goler live in chicago where president obama arrived a little while ago. phil keating is in florida with a lot going on down there. let's start with john since romney will be the first to cast his ballot today. >> that will be in massachusetts in an hour and 45 minutes. for the romney campaign, it's all about getting out the vote. when you look at the 11 swing states, he only leads in two. the others are all within the margin of error. he's going to hit the trail again today, going to the vote center in cleveland later on this morning. this afternoon, another in pittsburgh. paul ryan will be in richmond and also join the governor in cleveland. the governor was sitting around in the tarmac yesterday, according to an advisor saying, i don't want to sit in a hotel room all day on election day. let's go out and do what we can to muster every last vote. when you look at the early voting, it's advantage obama right now. governor romney really has to rack up the count on his side of things. yesterday in columbus urging his supporters at a rally to get out there and ge

[applause] i want to thank paul ryan for all he has done for our campaign. [applause] and for our country. besides my wife, hit paul is the best choice i have ever made. and i trust that his intellect and his hard work, and his commitment to principle, will continue to contribute to the good of our nation. i also want to thank ann, the love of my life. she would have been a wonderful first lady.

. >> and briefly, candy, one final question to you. you're just back from boston. you were y thereto romney campaign last night. they went in pretty upbeat. they thought they might have a good chance of winning, didn't they? >> they did. but i have to tell you that there was a certainty about the obama campaign even two weeks out. i talked to a senior strategist who said i'm not, you know, i'm not kidding you here. that's cleaned up version. i'm not kidding you here, candy,ly show you the figures afterwards. we have this. they were certain. there was an optimism in the romney camp. but it wasn't based on the numbers. it was based on the feel of things. and one thing you know when you cover a campaign, the feel of things can be really deceiving. >> numbers are more important than an -- >> if there is a mandate coming out of this, it is that you saw in the exit polls by a two-to-one margin, people believe there should be a path to citizenship for immigrants in this country. and i think if there's any mandate for republicans and democrats coming out of this, it is to get immigration reform don
e-mails, i am disappointed -- when i went to work for the mayor of boston i was told seriously there's one thing you got to remember. you have -- never talk when you can not and never not when you can wind. why these two intelligent men rescinding these embarrassing e-mails is baffling. did they not know, talk about white collar crime, that no one would be indicted if it would not for e-mails. i am sorry for the general david petraeus family. there does not appear to be any public policy relevance to this. i am sorry people are fussing over it. >> it is a major public policy f they cause -- do you think the democrats have a mandate to get that type of revenue through? when you look at this election -- >> and doing one part of the george bush tax cuts which were adopted after a president got a plurality of half a million votes. if-half a million give you a mandate to put the tax cuts in than 3.3 million plus ought to give you a mandate to put them out. >> how much of the president's vote the you think was about taxes and the argument that he made about higher taxes versus all of his o
the presidential race. the staff certainly said one thing, but i live in boston, near romney headquarters, so my cut was sensing a lot confidence coming out of that building. unlike mitt romney i had a concession speech prepared, for this event, as we thought through what this conversation would be like depending on either scenario, but i have a quick reflection on election night. the first was remembering exactly what it felt like in 2004 where you had a dozen constitutional amendments passed across the country, you haven't karl rove celebrated as the architect who had built a new republican electoral majority that would have traction for a decade or two, and you had a president reelected with the use of the wedge issue, a gay and lesbian, belgae bt families across the country, a dark moment, the fetal position for the lgbt movement, at what i sensed this year was how proud i was about our resilience. we pick ourselves up. we decided to fight in states. we decided to start talking to republicans. we decided to ban more from our great democratic friends. some people predicted, and it was a sense
major city except seattle and boston. i come from a very poor, humble background and in a poor section of a poor state. i have become very successful. my grandparents and my dad, they were staunch democrat. but their philosophy was it you do not work, you do not eat. their philosophy was they detested handouts. they were proud people. this is no longer the democratic party that our parents and grandparents respected and believed in. we have an appalingly ignorant populace across this country that cannot understand simple math. you know, i can follow it. but the vast majority do not follow the math. it is too complicated for them. if there was some way you could break it down fairly simple, we are spending $10 billion a day to operate our governmetn spending. guest: all of my charts and graphs are on my senate web page. that is exactly what we're trying to do. we are trying to lay this out in simple terms as possible to show the american people that punishing success does not work. let somebody else pay the price. but the fact is it will not work. information is powerful. you have to un
